I had the honor of being one of the makeup artists at the 4th annual Peace Couture this past Friday (thanks to the beautiful Leslie Joy from Vertical Tampa Bay!). This annual event showcased local fashion designers, artists and musicians to benefit The Spring of Tampa Bay, a Domestic Violence Center. The Historic Italian Club in Ybor City served as the backdrop for this multi-media evening. Fashion, food and fun for a great cause! What’s not to love about that?
I teamed up with Wanda, from 2Girls Glam and Danielle, from DonMeNow to create looks for over 30 models. Brushes were flying and we most definitely could have counted that night’s makeup sesh as cardio. An adrenaline boost from the buzz in the ballroom pre-runway show: countless cases of makeup, bottles of hairspray galore, models rehearsing, sound checks from the band… The evening ended with Danielle and I backstage transforming the model’s nude lips look to ravishing red for the finale.
Here’s a sneak peek of some of the smokey eye and nude lip looks I created taken via iphone! (More pics to come…Perhaps BonBon Rose Girls has some handy ?)
Loved being a part of an event that supports a charity and local talent! Did anyone else attend this fabulous show?
